Aston Manor Road Transport Museum are currently gearing up for the coming season, and cordially invite you to their first event of 2014 – a ‘Running Day’, today (Sunday, 23rd March). Here the general public can pop in, take a ride on vintage busses, browse stalls of transport ephemera and have have a shufty around.

Entry prices of £5 adult (including free programme), £2 children and £13 family – bus rides are free.

The organisers had the following to say on their Facebook page:

Remember, it’s our first Running Day of the season on Sunday. Plenty of buses running free services all day, plus sales stands in the museum, so do come along. More details on the Events Page, but remember, free buses from Walsall start at 10:20 and then every half hour, if you’re coming by car, please head for our Park and Ride site at Middlemore Lane, Aldridge, and use our continuous free service, as there’s effectively no public parking (except disabled) at Shenstone Drive. Help us have a fun and successful day!

The Running Day has entry prices of £5 adult (including free programme), £2 children and £13 family. All bus rides are free – services to Walsall (half hourly), Chasewater, Sutton and Barr Beacon/Streetly. About 12 different buses to ride on. Anyone coming by car, please head for our free Park and Ride site in Middlemore Lane, to avoid congestion in Northgate and Shenstone Drive.

It may be primarily a Running Day but there will also be lots of sales stands including a late extra from Bus & Coach Preservation. Although we will be running the Park and Ride service we also have more local parking available as he landlord at the Lime Kiln (formerly Struggling Monkey) opposite Jack Allen’s is happy for you to park there and I can confirm the Pedigree is very drinkable if you have time!

This is sure to be a great event – please do pop along. The collection needs the support of the public to survive, and it really is a wonderful thing.

A great local attraction – please pay it a visit.
